Cut Through the Social Media Noise

Once you find time for social media and move from social chatter to using social media for a purpose, you’ll see firsthand how difficult it can be to get noticed… How do you cut through all the social media noise and get people to notice what you have to say? Fact is, it’s not always easy.  To help you, here are 10 ways to make your message more likely to get noticed:

  1. Simplify Your Message
  2. Find Your Space
  3. Use Appropriate Channels
  4. Spread Your Message
  5. Get Help
  6. Appeal to Ego
  7. Cut the Clutter
  8. Appeal to Primitive Instincts
  9. Use Keywords
  10. Stick to One Point

Getting your message out there is not always about what you say but as much how you say it. Don’t just shovel your messages out into your social media channels. Think carefully about your audience, what they like and react to, and what else is going on within those services and networks.

Most of all… It’s not what you say that matters, but what your readers hear!

It’s your job to keep crafting and honing your message until you get it right. If people don’t “get it,” keep working until they do!
